The daily prompt today is: What was the last thing you searched for online? Why were you looking for it?
Wow, what a place to start — my first time participating in the daily prompt and ta da–the last thing I searched for was socks. They quit making my favorites about 15 years ago. Well they still make the type but you can only get them in white and I don’t like white socks. So I’ve been hunting. Found some 10 years ago at Macy’s that I liked and when I went back to get some more they didn’t carry them. Then I found some on LLBean. Same thing. Now Land’s End no longer has the latest kind I found. Hence the googling.
I’m old enough to remember that you used to be able to go back year after year and find the same products that you’d been using forever. Now I seem to spend vast amounts of time searching for replacements of favorite things I can no longer find. That’s when I’m not wandering around the grocery swearing under my breath and wondering why they’ve moved the teas or the health food or the canned tomatoes for the fifth time in the last four years…
So far no luck. Can’t find any socks I even want to try. Uh oh, I might have to learn how to darn. No, I’m not old enough to have automatically learned how to do that. Actually my 88-year-old mother doesn’t know how either — thank goodness because I don’t like doing crafts. Not of any sort. So glad she can’t teach me. I guess I’ll have to start putting post-its on my feet telling EMT’s if I’m in an accident they can’t take off my shoes.
